Your continued support of tutoring and mentoring benefits you, your families, and your community.
By donating whatever you can to not-for-profits such as Cabrini Connections and Tutor/Mentor Connection -- programs that host and support tutor/mentor programs -- you help students (that might otherwise give up hope and choose unproductive life paths) achieve greater success in academics, and the tools to participate in constructive career and life paths.
Many kids here leave the Cabrini Green neighborhood and go onto college, become community advocates and leaders, and/or (bare minimum) get a fairer shake in the job market as consumers.
The result for YOU is less crime, a stronger local economy, motivated participants in our democracy, a diversified labor/leader/advocate pool, better neighbors, new friends, and awesome karma in 2009.
Thanks to all of you who attended the Schubas benefit concert, and who have already spent what you can on tutoring and mentoring this year.
I enjoyed making maps and playing a bit of guitar for the cause in 2008, and look forward to working with you in 2009 to help support/improve these programs for our students.
PS..... If you would still like to contribute to an improved society through tutoring and mentoring, please make a year end donation.
And feel free to subscribe to any of the following blogs to learn about the students, and their success stories through the programs:
Peace and Happiness in 2009!
